Apple to Offer TV Show Access for $0.99/Month?

No comments:



A new rumor suggests that Apple may be offering access to all the episodes of a TV Show for $.99/month rather then the previously rumored $.99/episode rental charge.

According to a CultofMac source, Instead of renting individual TV shows for $1, customers will pay $1 a month for ALL EPISODES of that show. In other words, fans of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” can get all episodes of the show as long as they continue to pay the $1-a-month access fee. It would cost $12 to watch the show for the whole year. The tip comes from someone with connections inside Apple.

CultofMac notes that already media analysts are calling this unreasonable, saying that studios would never go for that. However, many studios already offer their shows online for free or with ads.

What do you think?

Mozilla Releases Alpha Build of Firefox for Android

No comments:



The Alpha release of the next major version of Fennec is now available for Android and Nokia N900 users to download and test.

According to Mozilla, the main focus of this release is to increase performance and responsiveness to user actions.

This is being implemented using two major technologies, “Electrolysis” and “Layers.” This Alpha release includes Electrolysis, which allows the browser interface to run in a separate process from the one rendering Web content. By doing this, Fennec is able to react much faster to user input while pages are loading or CPU intensive JavaScript is running.

The upcoming beta release will start taking advantage of Layers to greatly improve performance in graphic intensive actions like scrolling, zooming, animations and video. Mozilla is also working to optimize these actions using the hardware-accelerated graphics rendering capabilities showing up in today’s mobile devices.

Microsoft to Spend Half a Billion Promoting Windows Phone 7

No comments:



Microsoft will reportedly spend about half a billion dollars to promote Windows Phone 7 and hopefully catch up with Google and Apple, according to Kim-Mai Cutler in an article for TechCrunch.

Cutler relays a prediction from Jonathan Goldberg, a telecommunications analyst at Deutsche Bank, who estimates that Microsoft will spend $400 million on marketing alone for the Windows Phone 7 launch. This number doesn't include millions spend on "non-recurring engineering" costs to help offset development costs for manufacturers.

“This is make-or-break for them. They need to do whatever it takes to stay in the game,” says Goldberg. “It’s still wide open. They don’t have to take share from Android or Apple, so long as they can attract enough consumers switching from feature phones.”

Another source tells Cutler that Microsoft will spend half a billion on marketing and half a billion on development which totals a whopping one billion dollar cost for the launch.

“We have a long-term view and Microsoft has been in this position before in other businesses where we’ve had to take a long-term view,” says Microsoft senior product manager Greg Sullivan, who would not comment on the estimates. “The mobile phone market is growing by leaps and bounds, but it’s still in the early stages.”

So far, reviews of Windows Phone 7 have been mainly positive. The company is hoping that unique features such as XBox Live integration and Microsoft Office will be driving factor in the adoption of their mobile operating system. Microsoft recently revealed a list of popular games that would be ready for launch which can be viewed here.

Considering the explosive growth and future potential of the mobile sector, and Microsoft's late entry to the game, spending one billion on the launch is likely a necessity to prevent the company from falling further behind.

According to a Chinese netizen, he saw these posters at a China Unicom store located in Dongguan.

The 32GB model with no contract will be selling at $6980 yuan (about $1025 USD), while the 16GB is unknown yet.

Customers will also get free cases from Unicom when purchasing the iPhone 4 or iPad. Pre-ordering begins now.
